Chiba route translation
- This is a complete translation of Chiba's love ending only. His other endings will be added later.
- This translation begins immediately after choosing Chiba as Yuki's Bell One partner.
- When there are choices in the text, the "correct" one is noted in bold and only that choice is translated.
- general note: Chiba often refers to himself with the pronoun jibun rather than the more common ore or boku. Jibun is an extremely masculine pronoun, often used by soldiers. We've chosen to translate jibun as "myself" for two reasons: first, to highlight the difference between Chiba's manner of speech versus that of the other characters, and second, because the feel of jibun is a bit less personal toward oneself (as you might expect from a character who sees himself as a soldier-type) than other pronouns.
announcement: The second round of the Bell One Grand Prix is about to begin...
Sakaki: The second round will test your strength.
Sakaki: First, an explanation of the rules.
Panda-san: Which means, it's Panda-san's turn!
Panda-san: As Sakaki-han says, the second round is a contest of strength!
Panda-san: I want ya to show me so much of yer youth and strength that Ah'm blown away.
Panda-san: It's called "Run! Run run run-fest♪"!
Panda-san: These are the rules!
Panda-san: Now, various words will stream down the path in front of ya.
Panda-san: Which means ya continue forward if ya type quickly, before they disappear from the screen.
Panda-san: It's very simple.
Panda-san: The time limit is just one minute.
Panda-san: How many should ya type, ya ask?
Panda-san: Look forward to the results after ya finish.
Panda-san: Anyway, ya should just concentrate on typin' a lot.
Panda-san: What, what? Yer not confident at typin'?
Panda-san: Ya don't have to worry. Ya have a partner for times like this.
Panda-san: By askin' for yer partner's help, it becomes a teensy bit easier.
Panda-san: If yer confident in yer abilities, ya can try by yerself as an option.
Panda-san: So, what'll ya do?
Collaborate with your partner (recommended)
Try by yourself
[note: Choose whatever you like, but collaborating makes the game easier.]
(decision: Collaborate with your partner)
Panda-san: That's good!
Panda-san: And which input method will ya use?
(decision: Romaji input)
Panda-san: Ya want romaji input?
Panda-san: If you want to rest durin', press the escape key. Then ya'll pause.
Panda-san: So, are ya ready?
Chiba: Leave it to myself. I'm returning the favor.
Panda-san: Alrighty, start!
Yuki: We wooooon!
Chiba: We did it, Asahina!
Yuki: Yes! It's thanks to you, Chiba-san!
Chiba: No, you did well too, Asahina.
Joker: You won.
Yuki: Oh, Joker-san!
Chiba: Thank you!
Joker: That's a bit surprising.
Yuki: What is?
Joker: Well, Hayato, you're seriously happy. That's rare.
Chiba: Yes... Is it rare?
Yuki: Winning is a happy thing, isn't it?
Chiba: Myself thinks so too.
Chiba: This is our victory.
Joker: 'Our victory,' huh...
Yuki: Um, is there something weird about it...?
Joker: By the way, Hayato, what about club?
Chiba: I'm about to go.
Yuki: Oh, I'll go with you!
Joker: Ace-kun can't.
Joker: Come with me. I have a job I'd like you to do as student council president.
Yuki: As student council president...? Alright.
Chiba: Then, myself will be going.
Joker: Yeah, later.
Yuki: When I'm done, I'll come watch!
Yuki: So, Joker-san, what's the job?
Joker: Job? Oh, the job.
Joker: Let's see, what should it be?
Yuki: What do you mean what...?
Joker: You've gotten really friendly with Hayato.
Yuki: Really? That would make me happy.
Yuki: Chiba-san's kind of nice!
Joker: Yeah, I think so too.
Joker: So, specifically, what about him?
Yuki: Huh? What about him...?
Joker: Yuki-kun, what do you think is nice about Hayato?
Yuki: What's nice...
(Yuki: What is nice? Being asked formally, it's kind of hard.)
Yuki: Um... everything?
Joker: What is that?
Yuki: How should I put it... he's not deceptive, or rather, he's Chiba-san through and through.
Joker: Well, that's because Hayato can't be two-faced.
Yuki: And his diligence...
Yuki: And his seriousness, and I think it's awesome that he doesn't run away!
Yuki: Of course, his strength too!
Joker: Hmm. His strength is last.
Joker: But Yuki-kun? Didn't you say when you teamed up with Hayato in the Bell One, that you wanted to team up with him because he's strong?
Joker: But now is different?
Yuki: It's not different...
Joker: Then would you like Hayato even if he was weak?
Yuki: Chiba-san isn't weak.
Joker: I think he does have some weaknesses, though.
(Yuki: Like ghosts.)
(Yuki: Chiba-san told me that he hasn't told Joker-san because he doesn't want to be seen as pathetic.)
(Yuki: But I think Joker-san has already found out.)
(Yuki: That must be why Joker-san is talking about weaknesses...)
Yuki: Chiba-san isn't weak.
Joker: Do you really think so?
Yuki: Yes. He's not weak at all.
Joker: Hmm... Then it's fine.
Yuki: What is?
Joker: Well, I'm going too.
Yuki: Wait, the job?
Yuki: Didn't you say you wanted me to do a job as the student council president?
Joker: Did I say that?
Yuki: You did.
Joker: I wonder if I did.
Joker: I'm not so inept that I'd cause you trouble, Ace-kun whose hands are full with the Bell One.
Yuki: Wait, what was that...?
(Yuki: Joker-san's words had too deep a meaning, I didn't really get it.)
Yuki: Oh well. I'll go see Chiba-san.
Yuki: I forgot!
(Yuki: Joker-san definitely knows that Chiba-san can't deal with ghosts.)
(Yuki: But he tricked me into scaring him with fireflies...)
(Yuki: And I was going to give him a piece of my mind when I saw him!!)
Yuki: Next time I see him, I'll definitely tell him!
